The Pan-Asia Risk and Insurance Management Association (PARIMA) has appointed three new board members as of 8th March 2018.

The new faces joining the board include Rehana Box, Satoshi Hoshi and Takehisa Banno.

Box, Insurance Advisory Partner at Ashurst LLP, specialises in insurance law and advisory and retail financial services. She is a leading advisor on insurance in Australia to both the insurance industry and the public and private sectors generally. Box joins Melody Caffin of Raytheon and Kimberley Pelly of Queensland Airports as Board Members for PARIMA Australia.

As the Senior General Manager, Risk Management of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Hoshi’s role includes implementing the corporation’s ERM strategy and is responsible for introducing the first Global Insurance Program for MHI.

PARIMA Executive Director Stacey Huang explains why the association continues to be on the lookout for local ambassadors. “PARIMA’s membership growth signals an increasing appetite for professional development opportunities in the risk management profession. Getting country-level representatives strengthens PARIMA’s ability to engage better with existing and potential members on a local level, allowing us to gauge their needs and concerns more specifically,” says Huang. “And we’re not stopping here. There still much for us to do for the risk management community in the region”.
